[5] yGoosle PREFACE One of tlie main pui-poses in wi'itiug this book has been to try to present the subject of Geometry so tliat llie pupil shall Tiuderatand it not merely as a series of eorrei^t deductions, but shall realize the value and meaning of its principles as well, This lapect of tlie subject has been directly presented in some places, and it is hoped that it per- vades and shapes the presentation in all places. Again, teachers of Geometry generally agree that the most difficult part of their work lies in developing in pupils the power to work original eseixsises. The second main purpose of the book is to aid in the solution of this difiieulty by arranging original exercises iu groups, each of the earlier groups to be worked by a distinct method. The pupil is to be kept woi-king at each of these groups till he masters the method involved in it. Later, groups of mixed exercises to be worked by various methods are given. In tlie current exercises at the bottom of the page, only such exercises are used as can readily be solved in connection with the daily work. All difflcalt originals are included in the groups of exercises as indicated above. yimilarly, iu the writer's opinion, many of the numeri- m yGoosle cal applications of geometry call for special metliods of solution, and the thorough treatment of such exercises should be taken up separately and systematic ally, [See pp. 304-318, etc.] In the daily extempore work only such numerical problems are included as are needed to make clear and definite the meaning and value of the geometric principles considered. Every attempt has been made to create and cultivate the heiiristic attitiiile on the part of the pupil. This has been done by the method of initiating the pupil into original work described above, by qiieries in the course of proofs, and also at the bottom of different pages, and also by occasional queries in the course of the text where definitions and discussions are presented. In the writer's opinion, the time has not yet come for the purely heuristio study of Geometry in most schools, but it is all-important to use every means to arouse in the pnpil the attitude and energy of original investigation in the study of the siihject. In other respects, the aim has been to depart as little as possible from the methods most generally used at present in teaching Keometi-y. The Practical Applications (Groups 88-91) have been drawn from many sources, but the autliur wishes to ox- prcKs his especial indebtedness to the Committee which has collected the Real Applied Problems published from time to time in Sfhool Science nnd Miitheinatii.-x^ and of which Professor J. F. ilillis of the Francis "W. Parker School of Chicago is the chairman. Page 360 is dne almost en- tirely to Professor AViiHam Eetz of the East High School of Koehester, N. Y. FLETCHER DURELL. LiwaBNCEyiLi.E, N. J., Sept. 1, 1904, y Google TO THE TBACHEK 1. In working original exercises, one of the chief dif- ficulties of pupils lies ill their inability to construct the figure required and to make the particular enunciation from it. Many pupils, who are quite unable to do this preliminary work, after it is done can readils' discover a proof or a solution. In many csereisea in this book the figure is drawn and the particular enunciation made. It is left to the discretion of the teacher to determine for what other exercises it is best to do this for pupils. 2. It is frequently important to give partial aid to the pupil by eliciting the outline of a proof by questions such as the following: "On this figure (or, iu these two tri- angles) what angles are equal, and why?" "What lines are equal, and why?" etc. 3. In many cases it is also helpful to mark iu colored crayon paii's of equal lines, or oE equal angles. Thus, in the figure on p. 37 lines AB and DE may be drawn with red crayon, AO and DF with blue, and the angles A and J> marked by small arcs drawn with green crayon. IE colored craj"ons are not at hand, the homologous equal parts may be denoted by like synibois placed on them, tllUS : F y Google ^ TO THE TE.U'HER (either given or to be proved) by lifi- ures denoting the onk^r in which 11.,/ lines are to be taken. Thus, if 0.1: 0C= 01) OB, the relation iimy !)e indicated as ou the figure. 4. It is sometimes helpful to vaiy the symbolism of the book. Thus, in dealing equalities a convenient symbol for "angle" is 2)^, aa ^ A > 2^1 B. 5. Bach pupil need be required to work only so many originals iu each group as will give him a mastery of the particular method involved. A large number of exercises is given in order that the teacher may have mnuy to select from and may vary the work with successive classes. 6. It is important to insist that the solutions of exer- cises for the first few weeks be carefully written out; later, for many pupils, oral demonstration will be suiilcieiit.and ground can be covered more rapidly "^y its use. 7. In leading pupils to appreciate the meaning of theorems, it is helpful at times to point out that not every theorem has for its oljject the demonstration of a new and unexpected truth (i, e., not all are "synthetic"), but that some theoreips are analytic, it being their purpose to re- duce an obvious truth to the certain few principles with which we start in Geometry. Their function is, therefore, to simplify and clarify the subject rather tbau to extend its content. y Google TABLE OF CONTENTS Definitions akd Fiiwr Piunciplks . . Book I. Rectilinear Fh;uhes ....

DEFIHITIOWS 1, Computation of an area, Pr;ieticiil experience lias taught men that cei'fcaiii ways of dealing with objects in the world about us are more advuiifageons tlmn others; thus, if it be desired to find the num- ber of square yards in the area of a floor, we do not mark off the floor iuto actual square yards and count the number of square yards thus made, but pursue the much easier course of measuring two lines, the length and breadth of the floor, obtaiuicg 7 yards, say, as the length, and 5 yards as the width, and multiplying the length by the breadth. The area is thus found to be 35 squai'e yards. Let the pupil determine the area o£ soioe couveuient floor iu oauli of these two waj-s, aud compare the inbof of the two processes. 2. Computation of a volume. Similarly, for example, in order to determine the n amber of cubic feet which a box contains, instead of filling the box with block.s of ■Wood, each of the size of a eubie foot, and counting the number of blocks, we pur- sue the much easier course of measuring the number of linear feet in each inside edge of the box and multiplying together the three dimensions obtained; thus, if 19) yGoosle ]0 PLANE GROHrETE"/ tlie inside dimonMioii,-: an: », ■! anil 3 fci-'t, llif volumu is 5 X 4 X 3, or CO cubic tuat. Similarly, the direet methoii of mensuriiif! the nuniTjer ii£ bushels oE wheat in a bin is to fill a bushel meaaure with wheat from thu bin, time after time, tiH the biu is exhausted, and count the number of times the bushel measure is used. But a much leas laborious method is to measure the three dimensions of the bin in inches and divide their pvoduet by the number of eubic inches in a buabel. Let tlie pupil in like manner compare the lal)or of finding the number of feet of lumber in a given bloek of wood by actually saw- ing the Mock np into lumber feet, with the labor of measni'lng the dimensions of the block a7id computing the number of lumber feet by taking the product of the linear dimensions obtained. 3. Unknown line determined from known lines. Tlie fituiloLit is also probably familiar with the faut tluit, ii.v comjiutiitionB based on the relations of cer- tain lines whose lengths are known, the lengths of other unknown lines may be determined without the labor of measuring these unknown lines. Thus, for instance, if a ladder 5 yards long lean agninst a wall and have ita foot 3 yards from the wall, the hoight of the top of the ladder from the ground may be determined thus: (Height)^ = 5'^ _ 3' = 23 — 9 = IG. 4. Economies in representing surfaces, lines, etc. Other principles of advantage of an even more general eharaeter occur in dealing with geometric objects. Thus, since only one straight line can be passed through two given points, tlie two points may be taken as a highly economized symbol or representative of the line, by the use of which much labor is saved in dealing with lines, and new results are made attainable. y Google riT.nMV.TIilf JtAnNITUDES 11 Similarly, siiieo only one fliit, or plane surf:iee enn be passed through three given points (not iu the same straight line), these three points may be taken as a symbol or representative of the tlat sni-face. This gives the advan- tage not only of reducing an nnlimited surface to three points, but also of giving for the plane a symbol made up of three parts. By varying one of these parts and not the others, tlie plane iriiiy be varied in ouo respeet and not in others; also planes having certain properties in <;onimon may he grouped togetlier, and dealt with iu the groups formed. 5. Geometry as a science. Definition. The above illus- trations serve to Amw limv advantageous it often is to deal with geometric magnitudes by certain methods rather than others. In the study of Geometry as a science we proceed to niake a systematic examination of these methods. Geometry is the science which treats of the properties of continuous magnitudes and of space. GEOMETRIC MAGNITUDES 6. Solids. A physical solid is a portion of matter, as a bioek of wood, an iron weight, or a piece of marble. The portion of space oceiipied by a physieal solid may be considered apart from the physieal solid itself, hence A geometric solid is the portion of space occupied by a physieal solid, or definitely determined in any way. Hence, also, a geometric solid im a limited y)ortiou of space. One advantage id UKing sEOmetrie solids liua in tlda. If we deidt with phyaioal Bolida oiUy, aa blocks oE wood, uuurMu, iron, etc., we should need to determine tlie jiroperties oJ each kind o£ physical aoiid, y Google ]2 riiANE r.KOMF.TKV separately; but, by deterrainlug tiio jiropertits of a geomotric. nolitl, iwe deteimine onee for all the pvoperties of evoiy physical solid, tio matter what its material, that will exactly fill the space occupied by the giveu geometric solid. Hereafter in this book the term "solid" is understood to mean geometric solid, naless it be otherwise specified. 7. Other geometric magnitudes defined as boundaries, A surface is the bonudiiry of a «oiid. A line is the boundary of a surfaiie. A point is the boundary of a line. The solid, surface, line, and point are the fiiijdr.mcntal geometric magnitudes, 8. Geometric magnitudes defined by their dimensions. A solid has three dimensions; viz., length, breadth and A surface has two dimensions, length and breadth. A line has one dimension, length, A point has no dimension. Hence a point is that which has position, but no magnitude. 9. Geometric magnitudes defined as generated by motion. Aline is that which is generated by the motion of a point . A surface is that which is generated by the motion of a line (not moving along itself). A solid is that which is generated by the motion at a surface (not moving along itself). The three independent motions by which a solid is generated ilhia- 10. Geometric magnitudes as intersections. The inter- section of two surfaces is a line; of two lines is a paini. It is sometimes more advantageous to regard geometric magnitudes from one of the above points of view, some- times from another. y Google LINES 13 11. A geometric figure is any combination of poiots, lines, surfaces, or solids. 12. The form or shape o£ .i figure is determined by the relative position of its parts. 13. Similar geometric figures are those whieh have the same shape. Equivalent figures are tliose which have the same size. Equal or congruent figures are those which have the same >jli<tpr and .■<izt\ iind can, therefore, be made to coincide. 14. A point iri represented to tin- eye by a dot nnd ie; niimed by ll lett.et- Liftixed to the dot, as the point A, -A. 15. A straight line is a line such that, if any two points in it be fixed and the line rotated, every point in the line will retain its original position. A straight line is also sometimes described as a line which has the same direction throughout its whole extent; or, as the shortest line connecting two points. The word "line" may be used for — - — ■- "straight line," if no ambiguity results. 16. A curved line is a line no portion of which is straight. The word "curve " is often used for "curved line." 17. A broken line is a line made up of different straight 18. A rectilinear figure is'a figure composed only of straight lines; a curvilinear figure is a figure composed oTily of cnrved lines; a mixtilinear figure is a figure containing both straight and curved lines. y Google .14 PLANE GI,OMKTr 19.

An angle i» the amount of opening between two sti'aight linos which meet at a point. The sides of an angle are the lines whose intersection forms tlio iin^jli'; the vertex of an angle is the point in which the sides intersect. 23. Naming angles. (1) The most pr naming an angle is to use three let- ters, one for a point on each side of the angle with the letter at the vertex between these two, as the angle ABC. SiDce the aiae of an angle is indepen- dent of the length of its aides, the points nnmed on its aides may be taken at any plauB on its siilas. Thus, the angles AOl), BOD, iSO£,dOFa.ve all the same auglo. y Google ANGLKfi (2) In fiasc l.liei-c is Init onr iiiigk" at a eivoJi ven the lettor iit the vm-tox alone is sufri«ient to denote angle, as the angie in the last figure.

The foot of a perpendicular is the point in which the perpen- dicular meets the line to which it is drawn, thus Q is the foot of the perpendicular PQ. 27.

Ill tliU book, angles larger tliiin a atraigUt angle are not considered unless special mention ia ni;t.i 30. An oblique angle is an angle tliiit is nor a straight iiiigle. Hence, oblique angle is for acute, obtuse, and reflex angles. 31. Adjacent angles are angles whii^li have a common veiiex and a common side between them, an anglt's AOBan<iBOa. 32. Vertical angles are angles which have a common vertex and the sides of one angle the prolonga- tions of the sides of the other angle, as the angles AOG and BOD. 53. Complementary angles are two gotlicr equal a right angle, an the angles AOP a\>d rOQ. Hence, the complement of an angle is the difference between that angle and one right angle. u~ 54.

Angles as formed by a rotating straight line. If the line OB start in the position OA and rotate to the position OjB, it is said to generate tlie LAOB. ? The size of an angle may, therefore, \ I _,-' be considered as the amoniit of rotation ^ _ '^.j, .-'^ ^ of a line about a point, from the origi- /^ nal position of the hue. p/ If the rotation ia eon tinned far enough, a right angle {LAQG) is formed; afterward an obtuse angle {lAOD); then a straight angle {LAOli), and a reflex angle ( lAOV), etc. An advantage of this method of forming or coneeiving angles ia that by continning the rotation of the moving line an angle of indefinite size may be formed. 36. Units of angle. A right angle is a unit of angle useful for many purposes. Sometimes a smaller unit of angle is needed. A degree is one-ninetieth of a right angle; a minute is one-sixtieth of a degree; a second is one-sixtieth of a niinnte. BesidoB tbuse, oDjuv units of angle are used for ceitain puipoaes. SURFACES.

C<!vtjuii primary relations of geometric objects have already been giveu in the defiiiitioiis uaod for geometric; objecte. We now proceed to investigate the relations of geometrie maenifcudes more generally and systematically. 43. An axiom is a troth accepted as requiring no demonatratioti. 44. Two kinds of axioms are used in geometry: 1. General axioms, or axioms which apply to o.'-.her Ivinds of rinaiitity as wi>ll as to geometric magiiitudesj for instance, to numbers, forcca, masses, etc. y Google liU PLANK GEOIIETHY 2, Geometric axioms, or iisioms \ylii(!h apply to gee- metrii; tiiaguitiidtis alone. 45. The geEcral axioms may be stut.t'd as follows; GENERAL AXIOMS 1. Things H-hieh arc rqiud to fJir siime thintf, or to rqual ihingf, en' rqiiuJ fo Hwli nthrf. 2. Jf rqnah be ciddfid to pcinalu, ihe niim^ are equal. .■J. // equals he subtracted from equals, the remainders are equal. 4. Doubles of equals are equal; or. in general, if equals he multiplied hy equals the pndue/s tire eiii'ul. r>. Halves of equals are equal; or, in general, if eqnah he divided by equals the quotients are equal. 6. The whole is equal to the sum of its parts. 7. The whole is greater than any of its parts. 8. A quaiility may he substituted for its equal in any proeess. 9. Jfeqiials be added to, or suhtr acted from, miequals, the results are unequal in the same order; if uiiequals be added to Uiiequals in the same order, the results are unequal in that order. 10. Doubles, or halves, of uuequals are unequal in the same order, H. If miequals he subtracted from equals, the remainders are unequal in the reverse order. 12. If, of three quantities, the first is greater than the second, and the second is greater tJtan the third, then the jirsi is greater than the third. y Google GEOMETKIO AXIOHR 21 46. The value of the general axioms. Tlie axioms given above seem so obvious that the student at first is not likely to realize their value. This value may be illustrated aa follows: II the distnnee fvom Washington to PhiladelphiB be known, and also the distance fvom Philadelphia to New York, the distance from Washington to New York may be obtained by adding together the two distaneea named; for, by axiom 6, the whole is equal to the sum of its parts. Thus the labor of actually meusuriiig the distauee from ■Washington to New York is savod. Agaiu, if the lu'ifrht ot a suhoolboy o£ a ^'ivon age in Paris be measured, and the height of a like schoolboy in New York be meas- ured, and the result o£ the measnrempiit in each case is the same, we know that tho boys are o£ the same height, without the labor and cost of briugiugtlieboystogether and comparing their heights directly ; for, by axiom 1, things which are equal to the same thing are equal to each other. Thus the general axioms are to be looked at not merely as fundamental equivalences, bitt also as fundamental economies. For many purposes the latter point of view is more important than the former. 47. Tlie geometric axioms may be stated as follows: GEOMETRIC AXIOMS 1. Through Uvo given poinh onhj one slraighf line can be passed. 2. A geometric figure may be freclij moved in space with- out any change inform or she. This aiiom is equivalent to regarding space as mu/orm, or homn- loidal; that is, as having the same properties in all its parts. It has already been assumed in some of the deSnitions given. See Arts. 15 and 3u. 3. Through a given point one straight line a'nd only one can be drawn parallel to another given straight line. By Art. IS, geometric figures which coincide are equal. y Google 22 PLANE GEOMETCr 48. Utility or uses oi the geometric axioms. By means of the firet geonintric axiom we urc able to ishrink or con- dense any striiight line into two points. Later tiiis atlvan- tage gives rise Lo many other advantages. By tlie second geometrie axiom, tbe knowk'djfe whicli ive liaye of ono geo- metric object may be transferred to anotlier like object, how- ever widely separated in space. The utility of the third geometric axiom can be miwle more evident wlieu we come to use it in proving ]iew geometriu truths. 49. A postulate in geometry is a oonstruction of a geo- metric figure admitted as possible. 50. The postulates of geometry may be .-stated as follows : 1. Through any two points a straight line way he dt-airn. 2. A straight Unetnay ie extended indejiHitelij , or it maij be limited at any point. 3. A circumference may be described abont any given point as eenier, and with any given rifdiii.'^. These postulates limit the pupil to tbe hsb of the slrnight-eciKed ruler and tlie compasses in eonatmoting Gbuibb in geometry. One of the objects of the study ot geometry is to disi'over what geometrin figures can be coustructed by a combination of tbe eleiiienfnry eon- atraetions allowed in the postulates ; that is, by the use of tho two simplest drawing instraments. 51. Logical postulates. Besides the postulates which are used in the actual construction of figures, there are certain other postulates which are used only in the processes of reasoning. Thus, for purposes of reasoning, a given angle may be regarded as divided into any convenient num- ber of equal parts. Whether it is possible actually thus to divide this angle on paper by use of the ruler and com- passes, is another question. y Google DEMONSTRATION OF PROPEItTlER '26 DEMOKSTKATION OF GEOMETRIC RELATIONS 52. A geometric proof, or demonstration, is a course of reasoning by whidi a relation lietween geometric objects ia established. 53. A geometric theorem is a statement of a truth con- cerning geometric objects which requires demonstration. Es. The sum of the angles of a triangle equals two ri);'it angles. 54. A geometric problem is a statement of the construc- tion ot a geometric iigiire which is required to be made. Es, On a given line to eonstruet a triangle toutalning three equal 65. A proposition is a general term for either a theorem or a problem. Thus, propositions are sulidiviileil into two classes: 1, Theorenas; 2, Problems. 56. Immediate inference is of two kinds: 1. Changmg the point of view in a given statement. Thus the statement, "two straight lines drawn through two given points must coincide," may be changed to "two straight lines cannot inclose a space." 2. Reasoning which involves but a single step. Ex. "All straight angles are equal;" .'. "All right angles are equal." (Ax. 5.) 57. A corollary is a truth obtained by immediate infer- ence from another truth just stated or proved. 58. A scholium is a remark made upon some particular feature of a proposition, or upon two or more propositiona which are compared. y Google 2-i PLANE GEOMETRY 59. Hypothesis and conclusion. A |iroiiosition consists of two parts : 1. The hypothesis, oi- Unit wlikh is known or granted. 2. The conclusion, or that which is to he ]ii'ovi'd oi- coii- stvueted. Thus, in the pfoposition, "if two straight liiicH are per- pendienlar to the same line, they are parallel," the hypothesis is, that two given lines are perpendienlai" to jinother given line; the eoncUision is, that the two given I'mes are parallel. 60. The converse of a pvoposition is another proposi- tion formed by interchanging the hypothesis and the conclusion of the original proposition. Thus, theorem, "every point in the perpendicular bisector of ii. ]itie 18 equidistant from the estremitiea of the line;" Cotirefse, "every point equidiatant from the extremities of aline lies in the perpendicular biaeetor of the Hue." Or, in geneml, theorem, "if A is B, then A' is F." en»Terse, " if X is F, then A is nr' Frequently a converse is formed by interthanfiing p^i-t only of an hypothesis with part or all of the eoneluuion, or vice vi^rsii. Thus, theorem, "if ^ is B and C ia D, then J is I'r' com-erse, "" if J is B and X is Y, then C ia Jh" The converse of a theorem is not necessarily trne. Tims, it is true that all right angles are equal, but it is not true that all equal angles are right angles. 61. The opposite of a theorem is a theorem formed by making both the hypothesis and the conclusion of the original theorem negative, Ex. theorem, "if A is B, then X is Y;" opposiff, "if A is not B, then X is not 1'." ' y Google DEMONSTRATION OF PROPEETIES 25 If a direct theorem and its opposite ace both true, the uonverge is known to bo true without proof. Also, if a theorem and its converse are both true, the opposite ia known to be true withont proof. Thus certain economlea arise in the demonstration of theorems. 62. Methods of geometric proof. Sevuciil principal methods of proving theorems are used in geometry. 1. Direct demonstration. 2. Proof by superposition, in which two iijjureiS are proved equal by makiiii^ one of Ihein eoiiieide wifh the other. 3. Indirect demonstration, wliieh eonsists essfniially in showing that a given statement is true by i^howiiig that its negative cannot be true. Other special methods of proof will be pointed ont as they occur in the coarse of the work. 63. FornI of a proof. The statement of a theorem and its proof eonsist of certain distinct parts which it is impor- tant to keep clearly in mind. These parts are; 1. The general enunciation, which is the statement of the theorem in general terms. 2. The particular enunciation, or statement of the theorem as applied to a particular figure used to aid the mind in carrying forward the proof. 3. The construction of supplementary parts of the figure (not necessary in all proofs). 4. The proof. This must include a reason for every statement. 5. The conclusion. The letters Q. E. D., standing for "quod erat demon- strandum," and meaning "which was to be proved," are usually annexed at the end of a completed demonstration. y Google PLANE GEOMETi;V EXERCISES.

The locus of a point mny p,onKist of two or more sepa- rate lines or parts. Thus, the locus of a point moving so as to be always at a given distance from a f;iven line is two lines, one on either side of tlia given line, at the given distance from it. 115. Demonstration of loci. In order to prove tlint a given line is the locns of a given point moving according to a given geometric law, it is necessary: 1. To prove iJiai every 2>oiiit in the (jireii Hue i^irfisflrs tlie given hnr or condilion. 2. To prox'c that every jwini not in the {/irrn line does not sdiisfif Ihe given law or comHtion.

Henee, in Prop, XX it has been proved that the per- pendicular bisector of a line is the locus of all points equi- distant from Die extremities of the line. 116. Use of loci. Loci are useful in determining a point (or points) wLieh shall satisfy two or more geomet- y Google LOCI 53 rieal conditions. For, by finding the loens of all points which satisfy one of^the given conditions, and also finding the locns of all points which satisfy a second condition, and then finding the intersection of these two loci, we obtain the point (or points) which satisfy both coaditious at the same time Thus, if it be required to find the poiuts wliich are two inubes from one glvon poiat and tbrne inchea from another given point, tbe two given points being four inubos apart, the required points are tbe intetsections of tbe circumferences of two t-irtles.

A radius o£ a circle is a straight line drawn from the center to any point on the circumference, as AO. A diameter of a circle is a straight line drawn through the cen- ter and terminated by the circumfe- rence, as BC. 199. An arc is any portion of a circumference, as AG. A semi- circumference is an arc equal to one-half the eireumfei-ence, as BAG. A quadrant is an arc equal to one-fourth of a eireumferenee, B.SBD. 200. A chord is a straight line Joining the extremities of an arc, as EF. y Google 104 BOOK Tr. PLASE (lEOMETKV Every chord subtends two arcs. A miuor arc is the smaller of two ares subtended by a chord. A major arc is the larger of two arcs subtended by a chord. Thus, for the chord EF the minor arc is EPF, and the majnr arc is ETF. Conjugate arcs is a general term for a pair of minor and major aros. If the are subtended by a given chord is mentioned, unless it is otherwise specified, the minor arc is meant. 201. A tangent to a circle is a straight line which, if produced, has but one point in eonunon with the circle, aa MS. Hence, a tangent touches the circumference in one point only. A secant is a straight line which, if produced, intersects the circumference in two points, 'as GH. yis. 3 Fis. * 202, A segment of a circle is a portion of the circle bounded by an arc and its chord, as ABO (Fig. 3).

A sector of a circle is a portion of a circle bounded by two radii and the are included by them, aa FOQ (Fis, 3), yGoosle THE cmcLE l05 204. A central angle is an an^lo whose vertex is at the center and wliose sides are radii, as the angle POQ (Fig. 3). An inscribed angle is an angle whose vertex is in the circumference and whose sides are chords, as the angle A/JG' (Fig. 4). An angle inscribed in a segment is an angle whose ver- tex is in the are of the segment and whose sides are chords drawn ft'oni the vertex to the extremities of tlie are. Let the pupil draw a circle, a segment io it, and an angle In- scribed in tlie isi'gnieut. 205. Two circles tangent to each other are circles which are tangent to the same straiglit line at the same point. They are tangent hifernally or externally according as one circle lies entirely within or entirely without the other. See the figures, page 122. Concentric circles are circles which have the same center. Let tlie' pupil draw a pair of concentric circles. 206. A polygon inscribed in a circle is a polygon all of whose vertices lie in the circumference of the circle, as ABODE (Fig. 4). A circle circumscribed about a polygon is a cii'ele whose circumference passes through every vertex of the polygon. 207. A polygon circumscribed abont a circle is a polygon all of wliose sides are tangent to the circle, as PQlttiT (Fig. 5). A circle inscribed in a polygon is a circle to which all the sides of the polygon are tangent. Coacyclic points arc poiuts lying on the same circum- ference. y Google 1U6 BOOK n.

A diameter of a circle bisects the circle. For, by placing the two parts of the circle so that the diameters coincide and their arcs fait on the same side of the diame- ter, these arcs will coincide (Art. 197). 213. A straight line cannot intersect a circle in more than tivo points. For, if a straight Hue can intersect a circle in three (or more) points, three or more equal lines (radii) can be drawn from the same point (the center) to the straight line.

For many purposes, the most; advantageous way of ilealiog with a given magnitude is to take a certain definite part of the magnitude as a unit, and to determine the nnmbei' of times this unit must be taken in order to make up the given magnitude. Ease and precision iu dealing with magnitudes are thus obtained. Geometric magnitudes thus far have been treated aa wholes, the object being simply to determine whether two given magnitudes are equal, or unequal, or to determine some similar general relation. Hereafter geometric magnitudes will frequently be treated as if com- posed of units. To measure a given magnitude is to iind how many times the given magnitude contains another magnitude of tlie same kind taken as a unit. 244. Tlie numerical measure of a magtiituJe is the num- ber which expresses how many times the unit of measure is contained in the given magnitude. Thns, when a boy says that he is five feet tall, he means that, if afoot rule be applieti to Lis height, the foot ruie will be contained live times. A quantity is often measured to beat advautage by measuring a related but more accessible quantity, which Las the same numerical meas- ure as the original quantity. This process is indirect measurement. Thus, the temperature of the air is measured iniiirettly by measuring the height of a column of mercury in a thermometer tube.

Au important piirticular instance of ratio is tbat ratio in wliicb one of tbe two mag- nitudes compared is a unit of measurement. Hence, the nnmerical measure of a magnitude is the ratio of tbe mag- nitude to tlie unit of measure. Tims, tlie numerical meaaure of tbe beiglit of a boy is tbe ratio of, bisIieigU(5 ft.) to tbe uait of measiiru (I ft.), orS. 247.

As another illustration of a variable and its limit, we may talie the ease of a point Ptravelling along a given line AB, in auch ft way that in the first second it passes over APi, one-half the line AB; in the second second over half the remaining part o£ the line, and arrives it P;] in tlia third second over one- half the remainder of the line, and , , , , arrives at Pj, etc. It is evident -^ fi ^' ^^ ^ that the point P can never arrive at B; for, in order to do this, in some one second the point would need to pass over the whole of the remaining dietanee.

Proof that lines are proportional. In order to prove that certain lines are proportional, or have propor- tional relations, it is usually best to show that the given lines are homologous sides of similar triangles. Sometimes, however, other methods of proof are used (as the theorems of Arts. 354 and 358) ; but these, if in- vestigated, are usually found to be the method of similar triangles in disguise.

A uait of surface is a square whose side is a unit of length, as a square inch, a square yard, or a square etutirneter. 377. TIip area of a surface is the number of units of surface which the given surface contains. It is important for tbe student to grasp firmly the fact that area menus not mere vague largeness of surface, but that it is a nainber. Beinf^ a number, it can be resolved into faKtors, it may be determined as a product of simpler numbers, and handled with ease and precision 378, Equivalent plane figures are plane figures having pqunl areas. Thus two triangles may have equal areas (he eqiiivaletit) and ret not be of the same shape, that is, not be equal (congruent). 379, Abbreviations. Instead of "area of a rectangle," for example, it Is often convenient to say simply "rectan- gle." So instead of "the number of linear units in the base," we use simply "the base." In like manner, for "product of the number of linear utiits in the base by the number of linear units in the altitude," a common ab- breviation is "product of the base by the altitude."

Limitations of numerical computations. Owing to the limitations of human eyesight and of the instruments used in making measurements, no measurement can be accurate beyond the fifth or sixth figure; and in ordinary work, stteh as is done by a carpenter, measurempnts are not accurate beyond the third figure. As all numerical applications of geometry are based on practical measure- ments, it is not necessary to carry arithmetical work beyond the fifth or sixth significant digit. Other methods of facilitating numerical computations, as by the use of logarithms, are beyond the scope of this book. y Google 6Ub PLANE GEOMEIKY KUMEBICAL PKOPEKTIES OF LINES EXERCISES.

Solid Geometry treats of the properties of space of three dimensions. Many of the properties of space of three dimensiona are determined by use of the plane and of the pcopertiea of plaue figures already obtained in Plane Geometry. 498. A plane is a surface such that, if any two points in it be joined by a straight line, the line lies wholly in the surface. 499. A plane is determined by given points or lines, if no other plane can pass through the given points or lines "without coinciding with the given plane. 500. Fundamental property of a plane in apace. A plane is determined by any three points not in a straight line. For, if through a line con- ,c necting two given poiuts, A and B, a plane be passed, the plane, if rotated, can pass through a third given point, C, in but one position. ■'* The importance of the above principle is seen from the faet that it reduces an unlimited surface to three points, thus making a vast econoijij to the attention. It also enables us to eouuect different planes, and treat of their properties aystematically. (3iy) yGoosle 320 BOOK VI. SOLID GEOMETRY 501 . Other modes of determining a plane. A plane may also be delerm'uied by any equivalent of three points not iu a straight line, as by a straight line and a point outside the, line; or hy two intersecting straight lines; or by two parallel straight lines. It is often more eonvenient to use one o£ these latter raethods of determining a plane than to reduea the data to tliree points md use 502. Representation of a plane in geometric figures. In reasoning concevuiug the plane, it is often an advantage to have the plane represented in all directions. Hence, in drawing a geometric fignre, a plane is usually represented to the eye by a small parallelogram. This ia virtually a donble aae of two intersecting lines, or of two parallel lines, to determine a plane (Art. 501]. 503. Postulate of Solid Geometry. The principle of Art. 499 may also be stated as a postulate, thus: Through any three points not in a straight line ior their eqnivaJeni) a plane may be passed. 504. The foot of a line is the point in which the line intersects a given plane. 505. A straight line perpendicular to a plane is a line perpendicular to every line in the plane drawn through its foot. A straight line perpendicular to a plane is sometimes called a normal y Google LINES AND PLANES 321 506. A parallel straight line aud plane are a Hue aad plane which cannot meet, however far they he produced. 507. Parallel planes are planes wliich caonot meet, however far they he produced, 508. Properties of planes inferred immediately. 1. A atraighl line, not in u yircti plane, can in!erseci IJie given plane in but one point. For, if the line intersect the given plane in two or more points, by definition of a plane, the line must lie in the plane. Art. 498. 2. The intersection of two planes is a straight line. For, if two points common to the two planes be joined by a straight line, this line lies in each plane (Art. 498) ; and no other point can be common to the two planes, for, throagh a straight line and a point outside of it only one plane can be passed.

A dihedral aagie is the opening between two in- tersecting planes. Prom certain points of view, a dilitdriii angle may be regarded as a wedge or slice of space cut out by the planes forming the dihedral angle. 541. The faces of a dihedral angle aro the planes form- ing the diliedral angle. The edge of a dihedral angle is the straight line in which the faces intersect. p 542. Naming dihedral an- gles. A dihedral angle may bo named, or denoted, by naming its edge, as the dihedral angle -1J5; or by naming four points, two on the edge and one on each face, those on the edge coming between the points on the faces, as F^AB-Q. The latter method is necessary in naming two or more dihedral angles which have a common edge. 543. Equal dihedral angles are diliedral angles which <ian be made to coincide, 644, Adjacent dihedral angles are dihedral angles liav- ing the same edge and a face between them in common. 545. Vertical dihedral angles are two dihedral angles having the same edge, and the faces of one the prolonga- tions of the faces in the other. 548. A right dihedj'al angle is one of two c((iial adja- cent dihedral iuiglcs t'onued by two ])lanea. y Google 338 vy. 547. A plane per- pendicular to a givoii plane is a plaiii; fovra- ^____„ ing: a right diliedra! \ angle with the givuu \ plane . \ Many of the properties of dihedral angles are obtained most conveniently by using a plane angle to represent the dihedral angle. 548. The plane angle of a dihedral an- gle is the angle formed by two lines drawn one in each face, perpendicular to the edge at the same point. Thus, in the dihedral angle C-AB-F, if FQ is a line in the face AD perpendicu- lar to the edge AB at P, and PR is a line in face AF perpendicular to the edge AB at F, the angle QPIi is tiie plane angle of the dihedral angle C-AB-F. 549. Property of plane angles of a dihedral angle. The magtiltmU of tlio plane angle of a dihedral angle is the same at every point of the edge.

Of the common proportieB of a polyheilral angle and a epherical polygon, some are discovered more readily from the one figure and some from the other. In general, the spherical polygon ia simpler to deal with than a polyhedral angle. For instance, if a triheUral angle were drawn with the plane angles of its dihedral angles, nine lines would be used, forming a complicated tigure in solid apace; whereas, the same magnitudes are represented in a apherieal triangle by three lines in an approximately plane figure. On the other hand, the spherieal polygon, beeauao of its lack of detailed parts, is often not so suggestive of properties as the poly- hedral angle. Proposition X. Theorem 775.

Modern Geometry, In recent times many new georaetfie ideas have been invented, and some of them developed into important new branches of geometry. Thus, the idea of symmetry (see Art. 484, etc.) is a modern geometric concept. A few other of these modero concepts and methods will he briefly mentioned, but their thorough consideration lies beyond the seope of this hook. 841. Projective Geometry. The idea of projections (see Art. 345) has been developed in eomparatiyely recent times into an important branch of mathematics with many praetieal applications, as in engineering, architec- ture, constructicm of maps, etc. 842. Principle of Continuity, By this principle two or more theorems are made special cases of a single more general theorem. An important aid in obtaining continuity among geometric principles is the application of the con- cept of negative quantity to geometric magnitudes. Thus, a negative line is a line opposite in direction to a given line taken as positive. For example, if OA is +, OB is - (485) yGoosle 48G Similarly, a negative angle is an angle formed by rotating a line in a plane in a direction opposite from a direction of rotation taken as positive. Thus, if the line OA rotating from the position OA forms the positive angle AOB, the same line rotating in the opposite direction forms the negative angle AOB'. Similarly, positive and negative ares are formed. In like manner, if P and P' are on opposite sides of the line AB and the area PAB is taken as positive, the area P'AB will be negative. As an ilhistratiou of the law of continnity, we may take the Uieoreni that the sum of the triangles formed by drawing lines from a point to the vertices of a polygon equals the area of the polygon, " " Applying this to the qnadrilateral ABCD, if the point Pfalla within the quadrilateral, ^PAB+AFBC + APCI) + i^rAD=ABCr> (Ax. 6). Also, if the point falls without the quadrilateral at J", AP'AB + AP'BG+ AP'C7>+ A P'AD == ABCD, since APAD is a negative area, and hence is to be subtracted from the sum of the other three triangles. 843. The Principle of Reciprocity, or Duality, is a principle of relation between two theorems by which each theorem is convertible into the other by causing the woi-ds for the same two gooniotrie objects in each tlicorem to ex- cliaTige plaecK. y Google MODERN GEOMETRIC CONCEPTS 487 Thus, of t.liL'orems VI and VII, Book I, either may be convei'ted into the otiier by replacing the word "sides" by "aogles," and "angles" by "sides." Henee these are termed reciprocal theorems. The following are other instances of reciproeiil geometric properties : 1. Two points 2. Three p<ri«U straight line deleriN determine a <e a plane. 1.

The reciprocal of a theorem is not necessarily true. Thns, two parallel straight lines determine a plane, but two parallel planes do not determine a line. However, by the use of the principle of reciprocity, geometrical properties, not otherwise obvious, are fre- quently suggested. 844. Principle of Homology. Just as thii law of reci- procity indicates relations between one set of geometric concepts (as lines) and another set of geometric concepts (as points), so the law of homology indicates relations between a set of geometric concepts and a set of concepts outside of geometry: as a set of algebraic concepts, for instance. Thus, if a and l are nnmbers, by algebra {a + h) (a — i) Also, if a and b are segments of a line, the rectangle («+6)X (i( — h) is equivalent to the difference between the squares ir and V'. By means of this principle, truths which would be over- looked or difficult to prove in one departmeut of thonght y Google 488 (lEO^liriKY. Al'I'ENVlX are made obvious by observing tlie corresponding truth in another department of thought. Thus, if a and h ai-e line segments, tlie theorem (a + h)" + {a—b}- — 2{(t--i-b-} is not immediately obvious in geo- metry, but becomes so bs observing the Hke relation between the algebraic uumbers a and i>. 845. Non-Euclidean Geometry. Hyperspace. By vary- ing the properties of space, as these are ordiuarily stated, different kinds of space may be conceived of, each having its own geometric laws and properties, Thus, space, as we ordinarily conceive it, has three dimensions, but it is possible to conceive of space as having four or more dimensions. To mention a single property of four dimen- sional space, in sneh a space it would be possible, by simple pressure, to turn a sphere, as an orange, inside out without breaking its surface. As an aid toward eonoeiving how tliia ia poaslblo, consider a plane in wiiicil one eii'cle lies inside another. No matter how these eirelea are moved about in the plane, it is impossiljle to shift the inner eirale KO aa to piaee it outside the other witliout l)rea!iing the oiroumference III the outer circle. But, if we are allowed to use the third dimension of space, it ia a aimple matter to lift the inner circle up out of the plane and set it down outside the larger oirale.' Suuilarly it, in space o£ three dimensions, we have one spherical aliell inside a larger shell, it is impossible to place the smaller shell ontsida the larger without breaking the larger. But if the nse of a fourth dimension be allowed, — that is. the use of another dimension of freedom of motion, — it ls possible to place Che inner shell outside the larger without breaking the latter. 846. Curved Spaces. By varying the geometric, axioms of space (see Art. 47), different kinds of space may be conceived of. Thus, we may conceive of space such that through a given point one line may be drawn parallel to a given ime (that is ordmary, or Euclideau space}; or such y Google MODF.KS GEOMETillC COKCEPTS 489 that through a given point no line can be drawn parallel to a given liue (spherical space); or such that through a given point more than one line can be drawn parallel to a given liue (pseudo- spherical space). These different kinds of space differ in many of their properties. For example, in the first of them the sum of the angles of a triangle equals two right angles; in the second, it is greater; in the third, it is less. These different kinds of space, however, have many properties in common. Thus, in all of them every point in the perpendieaiar hiseetor of a liue is equidistant from the extremities of the liue. eXERCISKS. CROUP SE Ex. 1.

Herodotus says that geometry, as known iu Egypt, grew out of the need of remeasuring pieces of laud parts of which had been washed away by the Xiie floods, in order to make an e^ni- tabie readjustment of the taxes on the same. The substance of the Egyptian geometry is found in an old papyrus roll, now iu the British museum. This roll is, in eSect, a mathematical treatise written by a scribe named Ahmes at least 1700 B.C., and is, the writer states, a copy of a more ancient work, dating, say, 3000 B. C. 848. Epochs In the Development of Geometry. Prom Egypt a knowledge of geometry was transferred to Greece, whence it spread to other countries. Hence we have the following principal epochs in the development of geometry: 1. Egyptian : 3000 B. C— 1500 D. C. 2. Greek : COO B. C— 100 B, C. 3. Hindoo : 500 A. D— 1100 A. D. 4. Arab : 800 A.

Athelard, an English monk, visited Cordova, m Spam, in the disguise of a Mohamme- dan student, and proeui-cd a copy of Euclid m the Arabic language. This book he brought back to central Europe, where it was translated into Latin and became the basis of all geometric study in Europe till the year lriJ3, when, (WO) yGoosle niKTORY OF GEOMETRY 4i'l owing to the capture of Ooiiatautiiiople by the Turks, copies of the worlis of the Greek mathematicians in the original Greeli were scattered througli Europe. HISTORY OF GEOMETRICAL METHODS 849. Rlietorical Methods. By rhetorical methods in the presentation of geometric truths, is meant the use of definitions, axioms, theorems, geoiiieti'ic figures, the rep- resentation of geometi'ic magnitudes hy tlie use of letters, tlie arrangement of material in Books, etc. The Egyptians iiad none of these, their geometric knowledge being re- corded onlj' in the shape of the solutions of certain numeri- cal examples, from which the rules used must be inferred. Thales (Greece COO B.C.) fii'st made an enunciation of an abstract pro]»ei'ty of a gcometi'ie figure. He had a rude idea of the geometric theorem. Pythagoras (Italy 535, B.C) introduced formal defini- tions into geometry, though some of those used by him were not very accurate. Fof instance, his definition of a point is "unity having position." Pythagoras also arranged the leading propositions known to him in something like logical order. Hippocrates (Athens, 420 B. C.) was the tirst systemati- cally to denote a point by a capital letter, and a segment of a line by two capital tetters, as the line AB, as is done at present. He also wrote the first text-book on geometry. Plato (Athens, 380 B.C.) made definitions, axioms and postulates the beginning and basis of geometry. To Euclid (Alexandria, 280 B. C.) is due the division of geometry into Books, the formal enunciation of tlico- rems, the particular enuucialion, the f(>nual constru(;rion, y Google 492 GEOMETRY. Arl'ENDrX proof, and cuuclusioii, Ui presenting a proposition. He also introduced tlie use of the corollary and scholium. Using these methods of presenting geometric truths, Euclid ■wrote a text-book of geometry iu thirteen books, which ■was the standard text-book on this subject for nearly two thousand years. The use of the symbols A, CO , \\ , etc., in geometric proofs originated in the United States iu recent years. 850. Logical Methods. The Egyptians used no formal methods of proof. They probably obtained their few crude geometric processes as the result of experiment. The Hindoos also used no formal proof. One of their writers on geometry merely states a theorem, draws a figure, and says "Behold I " The use of logical methods of geometric proof is due to tiie Greeks. The early Greek geometricians used experi- viental methods at times, in order to obtain geometric truths. For instance, they determined that the angles at the base of an isosceles triangle are equal, by folding half of the triangle over on the altitude as an axis and observ- ing that the angles mentioned coincided as a fact, but without showing that they must coincide. Psrthagoras (i325 B. C.) was the first to establish geo- metric truths by systematic deduetion, but his methods were sometimes faulty. For instance, he believed that the converse of a proposition is necessarily true. Hippocrates (420 B. C.) used correct and rigorous de- duciion iu geometric proofs. He also introduced specific varieties of such deduction, such as the method of reduc- ing one proposition to another (Art, 296) , and the reductio ad ahsurdtim. y Google HISTORY OF GSOMETKY 493 The methoda o£ deduction used by the Greeks, ho^vaver, were de- fective in their lack of generality. For instance, it was often thought necessary to have a separate proof of a theorem for each different kind of figure to which the theorem applied. Thus, the theorem that the sura of the an- y-~~~~7\ gles of a triangle equals two right angles ,-' 'v, /' '\ (1) for the equilateral triangle Tiv use '•■ / .. . . v of the regular hexagon ; (2) for the right triangle by the use of a rectangle; (3) tor a Boalene triangle by dividing the scalene triangle into two right triangles. The Greeks appeared to fear that a general proof might be vitiated if it were applied to a figure in any way special or peculiar. In other words, they had no conception of the principle o( eontinuity (Art. 843). Plato (380 B. C,} introduced the metliod oE proof by ait<'!ysi'^. that is, by taliing a proposition as true and work- ing from it back to known truths (see Art. 196) . To Eudozus (3G0B. C.) is virtually due proof by the method of limits; though his inetliod, known as the method of exhaustions, is crude and cumbersome. ApoUonius (Alexandria, 225 B. C.) used projections, transversals, etc., which, in modern times, have developed into the subject of projective geometry. 851. Mechanical Methods, Tlie Greeks, in demonstra- ting a geometrical theorem, usually drew the figure em- ployed in a bed of sand. This method had certain advan- tages, but was not adapted to the use of a large audience. At the time when geometry was being developed in Greece, the interest in the subject was very general. There was scarcely a town but had its lectures on the subject. The news of the discovery ol a y Google 4',)i GEOJIETKY. .VPI'EyDIX new theortm spreati from town to town, and the theorem nas redenjon- strated in the sanii of each raarket place. The (ireek treatises, however, were written on velhim or papyrus by tiie use of the reed, or calamus, and ink. In Roman times, and in the middle ages, geometrienl figures were drawn in wax smeared on wooden boards, called tablets. They were drawn by the nse of the stylus, a metal stieii, pointed at one end for making marks, and broad at the other for erasing marks. Tliese was tablets were stiil in nse in Shakespeare's time (see Hamlet Act 1, Sc. 5, 1, 107). The blackboard and crayon are modern inventions, their nse having developed within the last one hundred years. The Greeks invented many kinds of drawing instruments for tracing various curves. It was due to the inflneuee of Plato (1180 B. C.) that, in constructing geometric figures, the use of oniy the rnier and compasses is permitted. HISTORY OF GEOMETRIC TRUTHS. PLANE GEOMETRY, 852. Rectilinear Figures. The Egyp- tians measured the area of any fonr- sided field by multiplying half the sura of one pair of opposite sides by half the sum of the other pair; which was equivalent to using the lormuia, area — — ^X -n ~' This, of ooursB, gives a eorreet result loc the rectangle and square, but gives too great a result for otlier quadrilaterals, as the trapeaoid, etc. Hence Joseph, of the Book of Genesis, in buying the fields of the Egyptians for Pharoah in time of famine by the use of this (ormuia, ill many onses paid for a larger field than lie obtained* The Egj-ptians had a special fondness for geometrical constructions, probably growing out of their work as temple y Google HISTORY OF GEOMETRY 495 biiilders. A ekss of workers existed among them called "rope-stretchers," whose business was the marking out of the foundations of buildings. These meu knew how to bisect an angle and also to coustruct a right angle. The latter was probably done bj' a method essentially the same as forming a right triangle whose sides are three, four and five units of length. Ahmes, in his treatise, has various constructions of the isosceles trapezoid from different data, Thales (600 B, C.) enunciated the following theorems: If two straight lines intersect, the opposite or vertical angles are equal; The angles &i the base of an isosceles triangle are equal; Two triangles are equal if two sides and the included angle of one are equal to two sides and the included angle of the other; The sum of the angles of a triangle equals two right angles; Two mutuallj" equiangular triangles are similar. Thales used the last of these tiieorems to measure the height of the great pyramid by measuring the length of the shadow cast by the pyramid and a!so measuring the length of the shadow of a post of known height at the same time and making a proportion between these quantities. Pythagoras (525 B. C.) and his followers discovered correct formulas for the areas of the principal rectilinear figures, and also discovered the theorems that the areas of similar polygons are as the squares of their homologous sides, and that the square on the hypotenuse of a right triangle equals the sum of the squares on the other two sides. The latter is called the Pythagorean theorem. They also discovered how to constnict a square equivalent to a given parallelogram, and to divide a given line in mean and extreme ratio, y Google 496 GEOMETRY. Ari'ENDIX To EudoxuB (380 8. C.) we owe the general theory of proportion in geonietr.v, and the treatment of incommen- surable quantities by the method of Eshaustions. By the use of these he obtained such theorems as that the areas of two circles are to each other as the squares of their radii, or of their diameters. In the writings of Hero (Alexandria, 125 B. C.) we first find the formula for the area of a triangle in terms of its sides, K=Vs(s — a) (s — b) (s — e). Hero also was the first to place land-snrveyiug on a scientific basis. It is a curious fact tliat Haro at the same time gives an ineorreet formula for the area of a triangle, ¥iz., K=ia{i+':), tliis formula being apparent!}' derived from Egyptian sources. Xenodorus (150 B. C.) investigated isoperemetricai figures. The Romans, though they excelled in engineering, ap- parently did not appreciate the value of the Greek geom- etry. Even after they became acquainted with it, they continued to use antiquated and inaccurate formulas for areas, some of them of obscure origin. Thus, they used the Egyptian formula for the area of a quadrilateral, K=—^ X— ^. They determined the area of an equilat- eral triangle whose side is a, by different formulas, all incorrect, as K=~~- , K=i{a"+a), and ZL = ia^. 853. The Circle. Thales enunciated the theorem that every diameter bisects a circle, and proved the theorem that an angle inscribed in a semicircle is a right angle. To Hippocrates (420 B. C.) is due the discovery of nearly all the other principal properties of the circle givaa in this book. y Google HISTORi" OP GEOMETRY 497 The Egyptians i-pgarded the area of the circle an eL|iii\ni- lent to ,ff of the diameter squared, which would make T-3.iC04. The Jews and Babylonians treated 7t as equal to 3. Archimedes, by the use of inscribed and circumscvihed regular polygons, showed that the true value of 7t lies between Sf and 3ki; that is, between 3.14285 and 3.1408. The Hindoo writers assign various values to 7t, as 3, 3b, l/lO, and Aryabhatta (530 A. D.) gives the correct ap- proximation, 3.1416. The Hindoos iised the foi'mnla 1/2 1/4 A& '^^^ ■^''*- *^^^ ^^ computing the numeri- eal value of ti. Within recent times, the value of n has been computed to 707 decimal places. The use of the symhoi n for the ratio of the circum- ference of a circle to the diameter was established in mathematiea by Euler (Germany, 1750). HISTORY OF GEOMETRIC TEDTHS, SOLID GEOMETRY 854. Polyhedrons. The Egyptians computed the vol- umes of solid figures from the linear dimensions of such figures. Thus, Ahmes computes the contents of an Egyp- tian bani by methods which are equivalent to the use is not known, it is not possible to say whetlier this formula is correct or not.

APl'ESinX Hippasus {470 B.C.) discovered the dodecaliodrnn. but, he was drowned by the other Pythagoreans for boasting of the discovery. Eudoxus (380 E. C.) showed that the volume of a pyra- mid is equivalent to one-third the product of its base by its altitude. E. F. August (Germany, 1849) introduced the prisma- toid formula into geometry and showed its importance. 855. The Three Round Bodies. Eudoxus showed that the volume of a cone is equivalent to one-third the area of its base by its altitude. Archimedes discovered the fonuulas for the surface and volume of the sphere. Menelaus (100 A. J).) treated of tlie properties of spherical triangles. Gerard (Holland, 1620) invented polar triangles and found the formulas for the area of a spherical triangle and of a spherical polygon. 856. Noa-Euclideaa Geometry. The idea that a space might exist having different properties from those which •we regard as belonging to the space in which we live, has occurred to different thiuiers at different times, but Lobatchewsky (Russia, 1793-1856) was the first to make systematic use of this principle. He found that if, instead of taking Geom, Ax. 2 as true, we suppose that through a given point in a plane several straight lines may be drawn parallel to a given line, the result is not a series of absur- dities or a general reductio ad absurdum; but, on the con- trary, a consistent series of theorems is obtained giving the properties of u space. y Google ITT.

Compare the supporting power of a beam X2 ft. long, 3 in. wide, and 6 in. high with that of a. beam 18 ft. long, 4 in, wide, and 10 in. high. -Uso compare the volumes of the two beams. EXERCISES. GROUP 94 (Books VIII and IX) 1. A hollow cylinder whose inside diameter is 6 in, ia partly filled with water. An irregularly shaped piece of ore when placed in the water causes the top surface of the water to rise 3.4 in, in the cylinder. Find the volume of the ore. 2. What is a tubular boiler? What is the advantage in using a tubular boiler as compared with a plain cylindrical boiler? If a tubular boiler is IS ft. long and contains 32 tubes each 3 in. in diameter, how much more heating surface has it than a plain cylindrical boiler of the same length and 36 in. in diameter? (Indicate both the long method and the short method of making this computation and use the short method.) 3. If a bridge is to have its linear dimensions lOOO times as great as those of a given model, the bridge will be how many times as heavy as the model? Why, then, may a bridge be planned so that in the model it will sup- port relatively heavy weights, yet when constructed according to the model, falls to pieces of its own weight? Show that this principle applies to other ronstructions, such as buildings, machines, etc., as well as to bridges. y Google rRACTICAL APPLICATIONS 535 i. Work again Eks, 23-25, 27, p. 473. 6. Make and work for yourself an example similar to Ek. 24, p. 473. 6. SouniJ spreads from a center in the form of tlie surface of an expanding s[)here. At the distance of 10 yd. from the source, how will the surface of this sphere compare with its surface as it was at 1 yd.? How, then, does the intensity of sound at 10 yd. from the source com- pare with its intensity at a distance of 1 yd.'f Does this law apply to all forces which radiate or act from a center aa to light, heat, magnetism, and gravitation? Why is it called the law of inverse squai'es? 7, If a body be placed within a spherical shell, the attractive forces exerted upon the body by different parts of the shell will balance or caned each other. Hence a body inside the earth, as at, the foot of a mine, ia attracted effectively only by the sphere of matter whose radius is the distance from the center of the earth to the given body. Hence, prove that the weight of a body below the surface of the earth varies as the distance of the body from the center of the earth. [Stjg. If W denote the weight of the body at the surface, and w its weight when below, R the radius of the earth, and r the distance of the body from the center when below the surface, show that 8 The heht ol tl e sun falling on a smaller sphere, as on the earth oi the moon cau-,es that b^dv to cast a conical shadow. Denoting the radium of the sun bj R the radius of the smaller sphere by r, the diatanct between the two spheres dr by d, and the length of the shadow by I, show that I = - _ ■. Find I when d - 92,800,000 mi,, R = 433,000 mi., r = 4000 mi. 9. If in a lunar ecli|}se the moon's center should pass through the axis of the conical shadow, and the moon is traveling at the rate of 2100 mi. an hour, how long would the total eclipse of the moon last? How long if the moon's center pas.?ed through the earth's conical ahadon- at n distance of 1000 mi. from the axia of tlie cone? y Google 531; c i)':oMr,'ri!v 10, If the moon's diaraotcr is 2160 mi., finil Ihn length o( the moon's shadow us caused by sunliglit. 11. If the distance of the moon from the earth's eenter VMrics from 221,600 mi. to 232,970, show bow this explains why some ei;lipscs of the mm are total and others annular. Why, also, at a given point on the earth's surface is an eclipse of the sun a so much rarer sight than an eclipse of the moon? Why, also, is its duration so much briefer? y Google FOEMi.n.AM OF" PLAICE OEOMETEY SYMBOLS 6, <!=siiles of Uianglo J/tr. /,'--^iadiH3 of a tilrcle. s = i{a + b + c). i).-diameter of acirele. ftf = aUitude on sklo r.
